Brett Kavanaugh, the longtime D.C. Circuit judge and now U.S. Supreme Court nominee, has spoken often about impartiality and his service on the bench. Kavanaugh got the nod Monday night to succeed the retiring Anthony Kennedy at the high court. What follows are snippets from some of Kavanaugh’s remarks over the years, some of which could come into sharper focus now as his nomination moves forward in the U.S. Senate.

>> Anthony Kennedy “has a very deep vision of equality and liberty that you find expressed in a variety of areas,” Kavanaugh said. “If it’s a tight case, a controversial case, and you’re wondering where he will come out, often times it’s good to put your chips on the individual, rather than the government.” [2015]
